Publisher's Summary

From Amy Morin, author of '13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do', the article that went viral and garnered a million views in two weeks, comes the ultimate how-to guide to overcome the obstacles getting in the way of a fabulous, more fulfilling and happier life.

Morin knows that of which she speaks. At just 26, while working as a psychologist and therapist, Morin's husband died suddenly. Inwardly reeling, she realised what pitfalls she didn't want to succumb to: self-pity, a sense of entitlement and resentment. In the 10 years since then, she's refined these principles and worked on them with countless patients. The results are impressive.

In this book, we learn to identify the 13 common habits that hold us back in life, and how to avoid them. We go to the gym to build up our physical muscles, but we haven't yet thought about mental strength: the real key to a more productive and meaningful life. This revolutionary book shows you how.

A great book!

If it doesn't make you a better person, it gives you...a mirror at least! It helps you better understand yourself before trying to fix aspects.

A practical guide to building mental strength

This is a straightforward guide to building your mental strength. There's no waffle or vague affirmations in this book, just down to earth advice to help you find some direction if you sometimes struggle with mental health (who doesn't?). It could almost be called a fitness book for the mind, with lots of practical guidance, in an easy to follow structure.

As others have said the narration by the author let's the audio book down a bit. It's quite monotone, but otherwise well presented.

Enlightening!

Absolutely must read for everyone who wants to self develop and live better. The author supports her theory with evidence soured from research. Excellent book.

Listened easily from start to finish in one day.

Brilliantly narrated by the author herself, it really is a compelling listen. Sound advice from the offset and beautifully frank and honest from a person that seems down to earth and admirable.

Thank you, Amy.

Quite good practical mental health advice

This was overall quite pleasant to listen to. I suggest speeding the reader's voice up just a bit as she can sound very gloomy otherwise. Also, though clearly communicated, some of the points are over explained and there were many lines which spelt out the very obvious. The examples of her clients felt more relevant than some of the inspiring individuals she talked about. Though interesting, the latter did not always feel that relevant, but I guess they added more positive notes to the book. Would probably recommend, even if you don't find any great epiphanies in it, the advice is worth having a reminder of.
